Streets Are Anti-Bush Activists' Stage
Sunday, Aug. 29, 2004; 7:59 PM

Anti-Bush demonstrators filled the streets of New York City on Sunday. The march, organized by United for Peace and Justice, was largely peaceful, but by late afternoon some demonstrators had set fire to a float on Seventh Avenue near Madison Square Garden. Police made arrests in several isolated incidents.

Protesters used signs, music and slogans to vent their frustrations about the Bush administration, drawing criticism from some who were preparing to attend the Republican National Convention.

Interviews with:

Kathleen Brant, 43, Manhattan activist and theater director

Jack Blood, 41, conservative Seattle activist and convention-goer

Sharon Heede, 46, Manhattan activist
